I am a big fan of Roddy Doyle whose "Paddy Clark, ha, ha, ha!" I loved very much. The book was a revelation when I read it, making me reminisce about my own childhood. In that delicate but engaging novel he dealt with the world of children. Now, after many years, he writes about middle-aged men in a collection of short stories title "Stories." Read this review by Scott Eyman for the details.
